Power plants and other industrial installations have problems with natural sediments accumulating at or within their intake structures, severely impacting the flow of cooling water. Many times these sediments contain heavy metals and other contaminants. The plants must dredge away the sediments to increase the capacity of the critical cross section flow.
Large Geotube® containers can be used to reduce the volume of disposed, dredged materials and to contain the contaminants. Geotube® engineered textiles allow for the dewatering of dredged spoils on-site, while allowing at least a 50% volume reduction.
